More Walt Disney World Ride Photography

Posted on
It has been awhile since I addressed the topic of photographing on a ride at Walt Disney World. First and foremost, you must…MUST…safely secure your camera so neither you or anyone else on the ride will be harmed.

Super Bokeh at the Magic Kingdom

I have dined in each of the three rooms of the Be Our Guest restaurant in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom and, by far, my favorite is The Ballroom. Magnificent golden chandeliers hang overhead as the painted cherubs look down upon all the guests enjoying their meals. As close to being in the animated feature, … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Be Our Guest"
